The Goonies Remake - A look back at a remade movie game classic

Here's another great classic that wasn't just a movie, it had a game too! And that game, just like the movie was called The Goonies. Originally the game came out for the C64, Atari 8bit and Apple II in 1985 from Datasoft, but was later ported to the ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC by US Gold. This game follows very closely to the movie in the fact that many of the screens were largely inspired by actual sets and puzzles seen in the film. Play through the levels while using two members of the Goonies to solve puzzles, and finally reach the exit. This remake overhauls the graphics in a pretty big way, but it really works and it looks so good while remaining true to the original game. Developed by the Sloth Team in 2010, this is a great remake.

Both the PC and Linux versions are available here
